WELL-BALANCED TEAM WINS Davenport Sophs Trail East Moline in Yearling Events. . - By SAM G1LMAN. Altho displaying no outstanding Fpuns in running contests as com-! rared with their rivals, Davenport I high school tracksters displayed a well-balanced team that placed la all events to defeat the Illinois schools with a score of 77 1-5 at the 17th annual Quad-city track and field meet held at the Rock Island public schools stadium last night I before a fair-sized crowd. Rock Island totaled- 63 2-5 points for second place. Moline finished third with 60 1-5 markers, while East Moline tallied a meager 20 1-5 counters. The East Moliners concentrated mainly on sophomore competition, knowing that they had no chance for first place in the varsity division and ended up on the long end of the final tallies for the yearlings with a score of 90. D. H. S. Sophs Second. Young Blue Devils placed second with a total of 64 with the Rocks next with 48 and Moline yearlings trailing with 10 points.

Rendleman again broke the shot put record, heaving the iron ball even a greater distance than his vesterday's mark. In the prelim inary tosses yesterday at the Rock Island oval, Hugh heaved the 12 pound ball 49 feet 9 inches, while today he bettered that record-' breaking heave with a throw of one-half inch more.

Hall fi fry Gillette Blades FrfHi' able merchants jive you wht you whw t ubt itution is practised, insist on Fur-Bearing Trout Shown On Pictures Wisconsin Fisherman Displays Only Known "Furre Piscis." Appleton, Wis.. May 14. (AP) If anyone doubts that Fred Kran-hold is at least one of the world's No. 1 fishermen let him give pause, for Fred offers pictorial proof of his piscatorial prowess. The picture is of what he calls a "furre piscis," of fur-bearing trout So far as is known, Fred is 4-the only angler extant who has claimed one of the extremely rare prizes. For many years Fred has described himself as the chief disciple of poseidon, the old Greek god who ruled all marine creatures, but the scoffers among his pals were wont to remark that when it came to fishing he might be good enough to catch a cold. Piqued no end, Fred decided to. show 'em. He says he did it thus: Armed with his fly-rod, he went to northern Wisconsin and finally found a secluded lake that showed no signs of being the habitat of the famous "furre piscis." Luck was with him. He snared a fine specimen. Back home, he mounted his catch, had it photographed, and called in his friends. If they were any doubters af ter they heard my story." Fred remarked dryly, "the picture sold em.' '. They saw the picture of a strange fish with a head and tail no trout could deny. The bodv was covered with thick fur. The absence of fins supported Fred's contention "furre piscis" propels itself only with its tail. Kranhold, who has .made quite a study of "furre piscis," says it is the original long distance weather prognosticates When a long, cold winter, is in prospect and Wisconsin certainly Just had one it grows a heavy coat of fur to protect itself when lakes freeze to the bottom.

By LYNN ASH Eleven track letters, the largest number in the past decade, will be presented to Augustana college athletes at a banquet the latter part of this month. Director of Ath letics Harold V. Almquist announced today following the last dual meet of the season yesterday won by Carthage college, 79 56 to 51 16, on its home field. Those who will receive awards at , a dinner given by the Quad- city alumni chapter of the Tribe of ikings and tentatively set for May 27 are Captain Willie De-Rocker; Rock Island, miler and 2-miler; Eugene Wittlake,. Rock Island, half -miler; Don Clark, Alexb, hurdler; Keith Hussey, Rock Island, miler; Don Anderson, Ba , tavia, pole vaulter; Bob Crippen, Moline, pole vaulter, high jumper and javelin man; William Zaruba, Chicago, miler and 2-miler; Carl Gustavson, Rock Island, quarter- miler; Lyman Johnson, Cambridge, dash man; Harold Strand, Galva, dash man, and George Lenc, Silvis, igh jumper ana weight man. All But Three to Return. All but. three of the letter win ners, DeRocker, Wittlake and Hus sey, all distance runners, will re turn to college next year, A cap tain for next year's squad will be elected at the Tribe banquet. Saturday Coach Almquist will en ter : Gustavson, DeRocker, Ander son and Clark in an Invitational meet at Elmhurst college with about 10 other colleges in Illinois and southern Wisconsin. The following week-end, May 22 and 23, approximately the same boys will be taken to the1 Little Nineteen conference meet at Nor mal. An interclass track meet wlt'a lettermen as well as others com peting will be run off at Ericsson field Monday and Tuesday afternoons of next week. Handicapped by the absence of three certain point getters, r the Norse failed to live up to expectations In their meet -with Carthage. Eugene Wittlake, stellar half-miler, was declared ineligible the afternoon before the meet and Keith Hussey and Frank Potter were on a geology field trip. ' Augie copped firsts In seven events out of 15 but fell down on the seconds and thirds. Only in the 2-mile did the Vikings grab first and second ; places,, while Carthage placed two men ahead in thr- shot, 8S0-yard run, 220-yard dash, javelin, discus and broad ump. . Altho he placed only third in the event, George Lenc hurled the avelin 1G5 feet 8 inches 2 feet 8 inches farther than the Augustana record et by Bob Crippen in the AUEie-Western meet this spring.. Too Much Work. Don Anderson attempted to set a new pole vault record but failed to clear 12 feet 3 inches after making ll feet 9 inches to win the event. Don weakened his chances of a record hoist by competing in the high jump and low hurdles after winning the pole vault and before trying for a new nark. Augustana picked up five points by winning the relay after Carth age runners got into considerable trouble, one man dropping his baton and another getting mixed up on his lane. The distance was not for a full mile. Each man went once around the Carthage track that measures five laps to the mile. Tennis matches scheduled for yesterday afternoon between Au gustana and Muscatine junior col lege at Muscatine were postponed for the second time until next Wednesday afternoon.

All week the aspirants have been out loosening up the muscles to see if they cannot do better than they did last Saturday, In Ross Pat Carney most of the hope has been placed. Lucas, a sophomore didn't do so well last week but is expected to garner several points In the dashes and 220 low hurdles Friday. Carney and McCarthy in the field events are also due for some places. Keiffert and McCabe are expected to place In the high jump and Kane should push the pole vaultera to a great height be fore he Is eliminated from the con test.

European Sprinters Had Better Watch Metcalfe By HENRY M'LEMORE United Press Staff Correspondent Milwaukee, May 14. CUP) The limits to which .1 will go to furnish my customers with first-hand information on sports never was better Illustrated than on -yesterday when, with a wintry gale blowing across Marquette university's ath letic field, I stepped out in nothing but a pair of sawed-off pants and ran a 100-yard dash against Ralph Metcalfe.; : ; , i - ; My. race with, the great runner was inspired by an article I read recently m which ' Ted Meredith, one-time holder of the world's record for the 440, and now coach of the Czechoslovakian Olympic team, said that America's sprinters had little chance to win their events in the July games in Berlin. While am still wanting I want to say that Meredith is in grave error, and that his prediction will bounce back in his face like a rubber check in July. .. -C , Even Henry Can't Do It. .. There's nothing in Europe that'll beat this Metcalfe. I ran one of the greatest races . ot my life against him yesterday, and yet he snapped the tape just as I blazed across the 60-yard maricer, with 40 yards still to go. My time was highly creditable 18 and 10 seconds. Coach Con Jennings caught me in but it looked like a telephone number against Ralph's .7. I gave everything I had, but when I finished Ralph had already gone to the broad jump pit and taken two leaps. The race was strictly on the level. It was no gag. Coach Jen nings, who made Metcalfe one of the greatest sprinters in track his tory, was just as attentive to me at the start as he was to Ralph In fact, he was more attentive, for sprinting styles have changed a great deal since I was the "fastest human," and I needed advice. When I was the "Georgia Bullet" races were started by the drop of a handkerchief by a spectator at the finsh line, and the stand up start was the vogue. Old daugher-rotypes of my races show me assum ing a stance at the start not unlike that used by John L! Sullivan on defense, .and we used to run in overalls. Coach Jennings changed all that. He- provided me with a. pair of pants so small that if waved as a FOUR ENTRIES RECEIVED FOR DISTRICT MEET Clinton, la May 14.

As I re member I did everything perfectly. I sprang from, my hole like a panther on its prey. At - least I thought I did.

I flung them out with all the abandon of a mother greeting a returning soldier sot), and continued to pump tiiem violently up and down until I whipped past the 20-yard stripe, and they grew numb. My leg. action, while it lasted, was tremendous. Unfortunately, as I passed . the half-way mark I strained a series of tendons. I didn't mind at the time, however, as the tendon . trouble tended to take my mind off my chest, which later collapsed. I also bit s my tongue. Metcalfe Not Human. Metcalfe simply is not human. He has steel springs for muscles, bellows for lungs. Otherwise he couldn't possibly come out of those starting holes as he did. Mind you, I left them like a panther, but even as I rose from them he passed me a dark shadow, going like . I heard the sharp bite of his spikes In the cinders, and I saw him. arms and legs driving like steel things, eat up the yards, ten or more at a stride. "He just breezed today," Coach Jennings said later. "Just took it easy. Some of the critics say he's an old man past his prime. And that Jesse Owens and Eulace Peacock will be our chief hopes in the Olympics. No, sir, don't you believe it. He's a cinch to take the 200, and it'll take the hottest day Peacock ever had to whip him in the hundred." I couldn't answer, for they were working on me with the pulraotor. But I believe him.

'GREAT' SHIRES TO PLAY BALL WITH CHICAGO But Not With White Sox; He Signs With Mill Semi-Pro. , Chicago, May 14.(AP) Charles Arthur (The Great) Shires, first baseman, boxer, referee and racon teur, has returned to CHcago. scene of the greatest triumphs, to play baseball. He was due to take his first workout today not, however with the Chicago White Sox, who brought him here in 192S but with a semi-professional club. Bill Har-ley's Mills team. What the great man will get for his services neither Harley nor Shires cared to reveal, but his new boss said he was "taken care of pretty well." Shires, well into his 30't, has decided to settle down, at least a little. He has been doing all right as a wrestling referee, but Is growing weary of wandering about the country. His wanderings have covered a lot of territory, for he played baseball and football at four different colleges under as many different names; played with the White Sox and Washington in the American league; saw service in the International league, the American association ,and the Texas league, and last season man aged the Harrisburg, Pa club jf tho New York-Pennsylvania league, Still a little chestyr but nothing like the rollicking boy who took a couple of brisk fistic workouts with Russell (Lena) Blackburne, manager of the Sox back in 1929, Shires said he . was through with organized baseball. "I had offers from class A A and Class A clubs this year, he said, Here's why millions say PHILLIES is the "most enjoyable cigar" Bayuk Cigars Inc. Gentlemen: What magic do you do to tobacco to make PHILLIES so different from all other cigars? Why hasn't it any of that harsh, bitter, bitey taste we find in other cigars ? I've never had to throw a PHILLIES away half smoked- and I've never found one that bit my tongue. (signed) E. J. HERE'S THE SECRET and it's the real reason why smokers have made PHILLIES the largest-selling cigar in America. Even the finest cigar tobaccos contain bitter oils and other harsh elements. These must be removed if a cigar is to be mild, mellow and uniform in taste. Ordinary curing methods haven't done and can't do this important job. That's why you men have been complaining about bitter, bitey cigars for years. Bayuk uses a process that removes these harsh, bitter elements without sacrificing one iota of the pure tobacco taste. The result is a cigar you really enjoy smoking . . . smooth mild mellowand with pleasing aroma. Bayuk Court Rules For Illinois Racing Group Chicago J o ck e y Club Loses Another Round In Its Plea. Chicago, May 14. (AP Thj National Jockey club, operator of Sportsman s Park, Chicago s half-mile track, had lost another round today in Its battle to get more than 18 days of racing this season. Superior Judge Joseph B. David dismissed the club's suit against the Illinois Racing commission yesterday, ruling that it had failed to prove that the commission was guilty of "corrupt practices and fraud" in alloting dates. Sportsman's Park was allotted the dates from Oct. 12 to 30, and had asked to have the meeting increased to 27 days. The Jockey club lost the first round several weeks ago when the commission refused to reconsider Its decision on dates for the season. Judge David upheld the commission in ruling against the dissatisfied group.
